Reducing landfill

Many people today are concerned about the state of our environment. Also, there are many who are looking for clean energy alternatives. One of the most prevalent issues facing us today is the state of our landfills. We seem to be running out of room in which to dump our garbage. However, landfills are beginning to be used as a source of clean energy.

When gas collects in a landfill it causes pressure. This gas is created through the breakdown of waste due to chemical reactions and microbes. This pressurized gas is released into the atmosphere and causing damage to the environment. However, a new clean energy option is using this gas as a new energy alternative.
